The Y&R Update Tuesday 6/13/17
Written by Ellen
At Dr. Harriss home, Kevin overhears him on the phone with his accomplice and demands to know who it is. John Doe is not an acceptable answer. He turns to Chloe. Does she know?
In Victors office, Abby learns that Dina changed her mind and has decided to stay in town, thanks to Abby. Graham told Victor. Abby is thrilled but doubts her mother is. Dinas abandonment hurt Ashley deeply. Playing up to Victor, Abby says she and her mother have one thing in common: excellent fathers.
At Jabot, Jack and Ashley share their feelings about Dinas decision. Ashley is happy for Jack and Abby, but not necessarily for herself. She tells Jack about her disturbing meeting with Graham. Jack agrees their mother is vulnerable, but shes no longer alone.
As Lily prepares dinner at home, she complains to Neil about Juliette. Lily thought they were friends and then Juliette turned around and accused Cane of sexual harassment. She apologizes for monopolizing the conversation. She invited Neil to hear about whats going on with Hamilton-Winters. Neil is more concerned about his daughter. Is there more to the story than Lily lets on?
Michael meets with Victoria and Cane at Brash & Sassy. He thinks their case is solid. Juliette has no proof, so its her word against Canes. Still, Cane is visibly worried. Victoria confirms that Cane was in no position to promise and grant Juliette a job, so theres no way he could have demanded sex for favors. In addition, Juliette screwed up in her marketing position---which Victoria offered and Juliette accepted enthusiastically---and she was fired for it. Victoria hopes thats enough to get the case dismissed. Lord knows she doesnt need another mess to clean up.
Billy arrives at Phylliss apartment laden with lots of stuff, including sports equipment of all kinds. Phyllis wonders where theyll put it all, but that can wait. She fetches a bottle of bubbly from the fridge and they celebrate first.
Leslie meets Hilary at a table in the athletic club dining room. She thanks Hilary for referring Juliette. The case is moving forward but it will be tough. Does Hilary have any further information or insight that might help Leslie?
Again at the Ashbys: Neil senses doubt. Lily denies it. Although she witnessed an argument between Cane and Juliette at work, she trusts her husband. He says nothing happened in Tokyo besides a little overindulging in sake, so she believes him. Their marriage is stronger than ever, and Cane wouldnt put it at risk. Neil is now behind her 100 percent.
Phyllis and Billy, now half dressed, relax on their sofa and talk about the difficulties theyve overcome in the past year. The future looks bright. Just then Billy gets a call summoning him to the office. Phyllis promises to have dinner waiting on his return, and she promises not to cook it.
At Dr. Harriss: Chloe lies to Kevin. Dr. Harris is working alone. Kevin doesnt buy it. He opens his duffel bag slightly. It contains a gun [which he did not discard in the trash, as this writer erroneously reported in a previous update] and Bellas teddy bear. He gives the bear to Chloe and she clutches it to her chest. Kevin announces that hes here to rescue Chloe. Dr. Harris says thats impossible. Chloe asks for a moment alone with the doctor and Kevin retreats. The doctor warns Chloe what will happen if she runs. Theyll all get caught and suffer the consequences, including Victors wrath. Chloe sees no other solution. She needs Kevin---and Bella. If the doctor doesnt tell Victor that he released Chloe, Victor will never know.
At the club: Hilary recites Juliettes sob story, embellishing as Hilary will do, and tells Leslie to go get 'em. After Leslie leaves for the judges chambers, Hilary takes a long sip of wine and smiles. Phyllis happens upon her and asks why shes so happy. Hilary says she just had a good meeting. Hilary turns the conversation toward Phyllis and Billy. Hilary is sorry for blowing Phylliss cover and for her role in the hockey debacle. Its no sweat to Phyllis. Life is good. In fact, its great. Shes there to pick up dinner for her and Billy---their first in their shared apartment. Hilary mentions the potentially ugly lawsuit filed against Brash & Sassy, which Phyllis considers bogus. Hilary suggests she think again.
At Brash & Sassy: Victoria warns Cane to steer clear of Juliette. Trying to talk to her will make things worse. Victoria is confident that Cane did nothing intentionally malicious and hell be vindicated. Billy overhears. In Victorias absence, Billy and Cane get into it. Billy hopes Cane told Michael everything so they can put this incident behind them. Cane resents the implication that he did wrong and refuses to confess to something he didnt do.
Graham finds Dina at the club bar. Theyre all set to extend their stay a few more days. She wants more than that, but he discourages it. Ashleys negativity is toxic, and Jack isnt much better. Speak of the devil. Jack appears. He hopes hes not interrupting. He requests a moment with his mother to discuss family stuff.
Dr. Harris frets. Its not safe for Chloe to go wandering off. Victor is a clear threat to her as is neglecting her treatment. Chloe considers this a moment and decides hes right. She has another wild idea. Kevin will stay with them in the house. Thats the last straw. Dr. Harris begins to dial Victor until he looks up and sees Chloe pointing a gun at him. Kevin returns. What on earth is she doing? Hes not crazy about her new plan, but Chloe insists she needs the doctors help as much as she needs Kevin. Dr. Harris eventually consents. Both can stay.
After a meeting with Ashley at Jabot, Ravi senses trouble on the home front. She marvels at his intuition and unloads about Dina and Graham. Ravi thinks Graham is worth investigating. He opens his laptop and gets to it.
At the club: Jack is glad Mother is staying. That Abby is a tenacious one, isnt she? Dina thinks shes a fine blend of Newman and Abbott. Jack prefers to think shes more Abbott, naturally. He invites Dina to stay at the house instead of at the club.
At Brash & Sassy: Billy apologizes to Victoria for missing the meeting and gives his reason. Victoria is a bit shaken but keeps her cool. Her only stipulation is no sleepovers with the kids at Phylliss apartment. Billy acquiesces and is willing to do whatever necessary to make Victorias life easier.
In the judges chambers, Michael states his case. The upshot is Juliette was a freelancer at the time of the alleged harassment, which means she was not Canes subordinate and hence no coercion could have taken place. He urges dismissal of the suit. The judge adjourns for the day. Hell hear Leslies rebuttal tomorrow. Michael cant help gloating a little bit.
At the club: Hilary defends Juliette to Phyllis and says the truth will come out. She shakes her head. Shes no fan of Lily, but this could be a devastating blow to her marriage. What a shame. . . .
Cane comes home to his loving and supportive wife. Lily embraces him and says it will be over soon.
Dr. Harris feels responsible for Chloe and is committed to her treatment. He steps outside the house, ostensibly to get the mail, but in fact he calls Victor. Everything is going fine---no problems, no surprises. Victor tells him to keep up the good work. Inside, Kevin asks Chloe if this is really what she wants. Its not ideal, she admits, but she needs all of them: the doctor and Kevin and Bella.
At Jabot: Ravis search is made more difficult because Ashley doesnt know Grahams last name. Ravi tries the Mergeron corporate website. He suggests Dina might actually enjoy the mans company. Ashley agrees its possible. Dina has always had a penchant for younger men, but this time its different. She thinks hes after Dinas money. Ravi says if Dina needs protection, thats what theyll give her.
At the club: Dina considers Jacks attractive offer, but Graham comes along and puts the kibosh on it. Dina saves face by telling Jack she wouldnt want to be an inconvenience, and besides, she and Graham are already settled at the club.
